How to choose an Investment Location
Investment and industry expertise will tell you to …
- Invest where the Government are investing, they want a return on investment
- Invest where Industry invest, they are encouraged by government to the location and also want a return on investment
- Both Government and Industry Create thousands of new Jobs
- New Jobs attract a strong Population Growth
- Population Growth puts upward pressure on Property Supply
- This increased demand increases the capital value of property
- This increased demand places further pressure on supply of Rental Dwellings
- Rental Yields increase under the pressure of demand
- Capital Growth plus very low vacancy rates and strong rental yields equates to a sound investment
